Next session: SWEDEN!
featuring Sydney Braun and his son Jonathan
Wednesday, January 30th
Get on The Song Shul’s distribution list to receive updates so you don’t miss this exciting evening!
Each month we begin by featuring a speaker who was born in another country, sharing stories of what it was like to grow up Jewish in that country. Hear about home rituals, community events, political challenges, anti-semitism and more.
Following that, the Canadian-born child or grandchild of the speaker then shares stories of growing up here in Canada as the offspring of a foreigner. Hear how the traditions of the “old country” affect the childhood of a Torontonian.
Join us to hear about the fascinating differences and to celebrate the astounding similarities of Our People.
